Iggy Peck, Architect by Andrea Beaty and David Roberts

Iggy Peck is a single-minded boy who has known his vocation in life since he was two: building/architecture. Lucky chap. His anti-architecture teacher tries her best to douse his passion, however, and temporarily succeeds.


While on a class field trip, however, disaster strikes and Iggy, with the help of his classmates, finally gets the chance to show off his talent and change his teacher’s perception of architecture/engineering.

Iggy Peck, Architect is a great book about the importance of following one’s passion despite naysayers getting in the way, and I really enjoyed the illustrations and the way it was written — the rhymes are witty and roll easily off the tongue.
